released. barack obama, six years and bill clinton, 11 years and george w. bush nine years. is he playing into the hands? >> yes, he is. on a different reason of transparency. mitt romney is different. he is saying to the american people, vote for me because i'm a successful businessman and i can turn around an economy economy. all we are saying is look at your personal economics. you are talking about what you want to do to the american economy and yet, we're seeing evidence that you moved money overseas. we are seeing evidence that you had shell corporations in the caymans and bahamas. that is very material to mitt romney's own argument as to why he should be president. that is why it is more than are you being transparent. is mitt romney willing to show is us the money? let's see why he is so qualified based on his declaration that he is a very good businessman. let's see it, mitt. >> let's see what carl had to say on "morning joe" about this. >> to quote a book title, i think romney's taxes are a game changer. it is extraordinary to have someone running for president that won't show h
of you folks in the political swamp. former president george w. bush said he had a good time but is never coming back. what he thinks he can do for mitt romney. >>> good morning from washington, d.c. it's wednesday, july 18th, 2012. this is the daily rundown. i'm luke russert, filling in for mr. chuck todd. let's get right to the first reads of the morning. mitt romney is aggressively trying to shift the spotlight off his bane background and unreleased tax returns, escalating a counter attack on the president, out with a new ad, continuing the line of attack of croneyism. >> where did all the obama stimulus money go, friends, donors, campaign supporters, special interest groups. >> romneyng thatucce ere partly education and infrastructure or as the president awkwardly put it, if you got a business, you didn't build that. >> to say that steve jobs didn't build apple, that henry ford didn't build ford motor, that -- that papa john didn't build papa john pizza, to say something like that is not just foolishness, it's insulting to every entrepreneur, every innovator in america. >> but romney'
to include the affluent and any renewal of the george w. bush era tax cuts. people out there in the country, as you mentioned, are trying to get a job. they see the immense challenges this nation faces. why is congress once again going to the bitter end on partisan issues at the expense of the american people? >> well, i'm ready to work to get people back to work. when bernanke was on capitol hill yesterday he said congress should act quickly to pull the united states back from the -- looking into the abyss with this fiscal cliff. yet the person who threw down the gauntlet was patty murray, leader of the democratic party, who said i would rather go over the cliff. that's what she said, she would rather go over the cliff in terms of what's happening with taxes. i think we should not raise taxes on anyone. the president agreed two years ago we shouldn't raise taxes on anyone in economic times like these, but the economy, luke, is worse now than it was two years ago. so, if it was a bad idea then, it is a worse idea now. i want to keep the tax rates as they are for at least a year, when we can
. he is going to make the argument that mitt romney's foreign policy as a return to george w. bush. he left office very unpopular with respect to his foreign policy. obama will argue that he inherited a mess, at a less secure world, and he has made it more secure. mitt romney is advocating the same policies as george w. bush and will try to paint them as being reckless, too quick to use force, and the like. one more direct line of attack that was tried already was mitt romney did make some statement saying that he did not think we should galavant the world and spent billions of dollars trying to find one person. he criticized obama's statement that he would go inside pakistan after bin laden. obama will try to track that out to show that mitt romney is not tough on terrorism. i think he will try to make the argument that mitt romney is trapped in the past and maybe making -- his statements that russia is our number one geopolitical cell was mocked by a lot of people in the foreign- policy establishment, including a lot of republicans. the arms control agreement was -- had very strong b
the first 216 years of the republic, george h.w. bush and obama added 5 trillion to the blink of an eye. so as i was developing the essential arguments for the boat, it occurred to me that he's not just redistributing wealth here at home, although he is absolutely doing that. and the way he has done it is by attacking the four core pillars of the u.s. economy. at the industrial, financial set her, and urges that are in the health care set very. those are the four pillars that uphold the entire u.s. economy and they're all interrelated to everything else. from day one he very methodically and very deliberately went about taking down those pillars because they were built on the free market principle of capitalism and remaking non-ascii massive redistributive schemes. he's been more successful in some areas than others. will see that the supreme court does on thursday with obamacare. i happen to think it's grossly unconstitutional. but he went about it in a systematic way. think about it this way. any other american president would be flipping his lid over eight, nine, 10% unemployment because
. and we all recall how great it was how great it was to have eight years of george w. bush as president. >> eight years was awesome. i was famous and i was powerful, but i have--i have no desire for fame and power any more. >> eliot: brings back great memories. tough as it may be today we'll try to end the week on a lighter note by taking a look back at the week that was with political satiriskt john fugelsang. >> thank you for having me and talking about the silliness that unites all. >> eliot: let's play this out. what we call it here, ann romney talking about you people. it was an amazing moment. take a listen. >> we have given you all you people need to know to under our financial situation and how we live our life. >> does that sum it all up. >> and it had to be an african-american journalist. i like ann omni. she seems like a great people, great kids, a knockout, ms survivor, lovely lady. i think this was a case they tried to have the romney that appears more human and life like to go out and do damage control and she didn't do it very well. it makes her look more out of touch. th
will be rid of george w. bush are what get this economy going again. our first black president. hope and change was his way of ringing optimism to his site, to his ideology. we all know it is a sick ideology really destroying the country, but he was able to sell it because he did it with a smile and a dead as a happy idea what this cause. you can never do at this time. his record is so bad is going to run a campaign against governor romney because he has no choice and is going to be cometely 100% negative. this gives governor romney and all abuzz a huge opening to be the happy warriors. we've got to understand happy warriors believed that america can be saved and that is worth saving and we can do the mission must have an it's going to be hard. i read about in this book is going to be hard and require sacrifice because the kooks will not go down without a fight. we have to persevere and it will be painful and branching. look at what is happening in western europe after decades of socialism. it is wrenching and it will be wrenching here. the key to the happy warrior is to understand t
very long years of george w. bush and dick cheney. part of the republican wisdom about what happened in 2008 is simply that john mccain wasn't disgusting enough. that john mccain wasn't willing to indulge that enraged batty old ladies of his audience who heard somewhere that obama is an arab. part of the republican establishment thinks the lesson of 2008 is john mccain was too decent. if you wallow with the birthers and he's a secret muslim folks, if you run your campaign out of the comment section of youtube videos about the panama canal and the muslim brotherhood taking over the state department, part of them thinks that's how you win. the question is are they right? >>> celebrating success instead of attacking and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. his course is extraordinarily foreign. >> the course we're on right now is foreign to us. it changes america. >> this idea of criticizing and attacking success, of demonizing those in all walks of life who have been successful, is something which is so foreign to us, we simply can't understand it
strategy was all about. we're in the process now of canonizing george h.w. bush, but it was george h.w. bush who gave us the willy horton ads in 1988, and ronald reagan who has already achieved sainthood in the gop, he started this general campaign in 1980 in philadelphia, mississippi, and that's where the three civil rights workers were killed, and that was just, to me, such a reprehensible thing to do. i was good friends with the mother of andrew goodman, one of those civil rights workers who was murdered. and she died a couple years ago, and i'm still good friends with his brother, david goodman. that family never recovered from those murders. and to give aid and comfort to the people who killed that young man who was only 20 years old at the time, is just beyond the pale as far as i'm concerned. >> the republican party as a safe house for bigotry is strong terms and you're making the case for why you're using language that strong. i wonder, though, if as a matter of political practice, the country is also a safe house for that kind of bigotry. the thing that underlied that whole fr

policy speeches with a bit of a grain of salt, paul. remember when george w. bush was running for president he talked about a more humble foreign policy. obama promised to close down guantanamo. he extended many of president bush's policies. so it is hard to say at this stage of the game what mitt romney really means and what and how he might act as commander in chief. >> and in afghanistan and syria, dan, pretty general comments by governor romney, not real specific, particularly on syria which is the hottest issue now going. pretty much stayed a step back about saying what he would do. >> syria is a difficult issue. afghanistan the president said he is pulling troops down. it is difficult for romney to say i will push troops back up. >> particularly when the american public seems to be war weary and supports this withdrawal. >> i think matt made an important distinction that needs to be emphasized. this isn't just president obama this is modern democratic foreign policy doctrine calling it leading from behind. which means we only act until we get the support of allies report
you some surprising comments from former president george w. bush. he doesn't give many interviews and in an interview with the hoover institute, he says why. he said he wants to fade from public view and public life as much as it is possible for any former president. >> but i really don't want to be in the public eye anymore. and i feel a certain sense of liberation not being out there. >> you like it better. >> i really do. eight years was awesome. and i was famous and i was powerful, but i have no desire for fame and power anymore. >> the former president said part of his motivation in wanting to fade from the scene is not to be seen trying to interfere in any way the current president. >>> a warming atlantic ocean has taken its toll again on one of greenland's giant glaciers. a piece twice the size of the island of manhattan has broken free. scientists have been watching a crack in the glacier for years. nasa took a satellite photo as it started to break off days ago. two years ago a piece twice the size of this one broke off. scientists will be watching carefully again to see

for president george w. bush. paul begala is a democratic strategist and adviser to a pro-obama super pac. paul, let's begin with you. as you've heard, the obama campaign was basically saying mitt romney is either a criminal or he's a liar. and romney's campaign is calling on the obama campaign to apologize. saying it's demeaning to the office of the president. do you think, in fact, an apology is necessary, paul? >> no, toughen up, mitt. this is campaigns. this is politics. here's what thomas jefferson campaign said about john adams. they called him a hideous her farm ra diedic character. adams said worse things about jefferson. if you're not tough enough to stand up to stephanie cutter, how are you going to stand up to vladimir putin, i mean, come on. >> even if it turns out to be completely untrue, what they say. >> no, this is completely true. there are signed documents that list him as the ceo. there are other documents that he signed that are sworn that said he had nothing to do with the company at the time. his public financial disclosure documents. one of them is wrong. either he was th
're look at is much more the george w. bush campaign in 2004. >> the accusations that john kerry -- >> reporter: he's talking about the swiftboat campaign. in which john kerry was demonized over what his campaign considered an attribute. his decorated service as a soldier in vietnam. the swiftboat ads, backed by a group of pro-bush veterans, questioned the democratic challenger's conduct in the war, his anti-war activities later and his patriotism. kerry was slow to respond and never very effective in refuting their claims. even though his critics offered little in the way of proof. he lost the election of course. for many democrats, swiftboating became a catch-all term for any unfair, untrue, personal assault on a candidate. >> romney's companies -- >> reporter: but if the president is troubled by the comparison of his bain attacks to the republican swiftboating, he's not showing it. >> when you're president, everything is called into question. >> reporter: romney has been spurred to hit back fast. >> as much as a presidential election is a referendum on the incumbent, the cllen
years, george h.w. b bush, 14 years. these are people who became to president it makes you wonder, what is in there? >> colby? >> 57% of the american people want him to releashis tax returns. you have republicans who want him to release hisax returns. i was thinking this was a non- issue until i heard george will say this makes you wonder if he has something to hide. >> roger? >> this is a loser of anan issue for george romney. >> mitt romneney. george is the father. >>itt romney, sorry. democratic surrogates are going around and saying that one man has seen romney's tax returns. it was john mccain, when he was a vetting him for vice president. the first thing mcca did was say, "taiwan sarahalin instead." -- i want sarah palin instead." why not t just do it? why not just tell us what was in the cayman islands, the swiss bank accounts? romney separatesimlf from the massive average american people by doing this. >> first of all, cain said that he look at them and his answswer was not to go for sarah palin. his answer was, "i look in them there was nothing in them." ther he is lying and yo
you think that it's not effective for the obama camp to keep blaming george w. bush and what they inherited? >> i wouldn't blame president bush but i would continue to point out i said earlier, andrea, it's good for people to remember that we were losing 750,000 jobs a month when the president took over. that's what he's inherited. though 84,000 may not sound like much in terms of a gain, it's a whole lot better than losing 750,000. i think he's doing the right thing there. he's also doing the right thing in stressing his jobs bill. his jobs bill contained 11 separate components, almost all of which republicans had supported in the past, and they essentially stonewalled him and stopped any progress from things that were like $50 billion of spending on infrastructure we know creates well-paying jobs on the construction sites and back in our factories, and it's hard to understand why they would obstruct that type o initiative. >> what about the tax cuts? michael steele, do you think the republicans really have a great talking point when they talk about tax cuts for millionaires
